Merry Christmas

Here's a quick illustration I've done for a Christmas card. Am happy with it tho felt it was a bit rushed. Am off on holiday to Singapore for 3 weeks today and I'm still at the computer. Somebody stop me!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to All! See you in 2008!

Return to Planet Bowie

I completed this illustration late last week and I'm very proud of it. I've been listening to a lot of Bowie, old stuff like Ziggy Stardust, Starman, Life on Mars as well as Rocketman and The Flight of the Conchords' Bowie's in Space... they all inspired me to do this homage to them. I'm planning to use it as my first 2008 promotional postcard.

Communication Overload

This is an illustration I did for my portfolio a month ago, again I'm late on posting it, my new year's resolution will be to publish much quicker. This one is just a bit of fun, showing how life in the modern office can be far too much.

Stereotypes: Italian Cameraman

This is another illustration I did for Red Bulletin Magazine, less than a fortnight after Helen Paradyce. They have a regular page article that pokes fun at a stereotype in the Formula 1 world. A previous one was a French Formula 1 fan, but they wanted me to do a stereotypical sleazy swarthy lecherous Italian Cameraman (not saying they're all like that!). So, throw in a beer gut, messy grey hair, sleazy smile, heavy tan and a camera and voilĂ !

Helen Paradyce

This is an illustration I did for Red Bulletin Magazine, Red Bull's Formula 1 Magazine, commissioned by James Greenhow. It was completed back in October actually but I haven't had chance to post it on here. Took less than a day to do and was lots of fun. Helen Paradyce is a fictional character like Patsy Stone from Ad Fab, she boozes around and hangs out in the drivers pit with the young men. She has a column in tha magazine and this accompanied it.
